5:01 pm
brian shindler up next. and a scramble to fix obamacare and insurance companies scramble to comply. will you stay insured? a insider speaks out for the first time tonight. plus he is just a regular guy. why? you'll find out. [ applause ] thank you. thank you very much. happy new year, everybody. and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. the decision of a judge in california has given the family of 13-year-old jahi mcmath until january 7th to prove she is worth attempting to save. lilja hi went in for what was expected to be just a routine
5:02 pm
tonsillectomy to help her sleep apnea, instead the botched operation left her in a coma. the hospital said she is brain dead and they've insisted that her life support be discontinued just a couple of daves before christmas. listen carefully to how the hospital spokesperson refers to jahi when he is answering reporters' questions. >> they are attorney -- their attorney and the family have been unable to produce transportation or facility that would approve a deceased body on a ventilator. if someone steps forward we'll do everything medically legally to turn this body over. >> this young lady is deceased and the only reason she is breathing is because of a temporary restraining order that keeps a ventilator on her. it is a very sad, sad tragedy and it shouldn't be prolonged. >> well jahi's family has fought in court to prevent the hospital
5:03 pm
from acting without the family's permission. her mom who is at her bedside constantly disputes the e that her daughter is dead. >> she is a beautiful girl and she is human, and she is breathing. and she is moving. and i love when i go in there and i touch her and she moves and i say, hey, jahi, i'm here and she moves, she's moving more and more. and for them to say the deceased or just the body, that is just -- like i said, i don't -- i have no words for it because that is my child that they are talking about. >> look, i'm not a neurologist and i wouldn't pretend to know the level if any of her brain function but i am a parent and a grand parent. heck, i'm say human being. and i would fight with all that is within me to hold on to any hope at all to protect the life of a member of my family. and i probably wouldn't be
5:04 pm
overconfident of the opinion of a hospital that said that my daughter's brain was dead because this is the hospital that also did the surgery that put her in the condition that was supposed to be routine and low-risk. now the family may come to believe there is nothing that will save their daughter. they may decide to take her off life support and allow her to be in the hands of god alone, as to whether she lives. but a larger issue comes from this in the form of a question that deserves an answer. whose life is it? does jahi belong to the hospital, to the lawyers and the judges, to medical experts, to the state, or two her parents? for me the answer is -- simple. mothers and fathers are held responsible for the child's early training, social and personal skilz and religious values and decisions about health and high jean and education. does government or institutions have the right to usurp the
5:05 pm
parents and step in as a power even greater than parents and equal with god? i'm reminded again through this case that my own unwavering commitment to the value of every human life is based on the notion that every life has value and worth and there is no such person who is disposable, one whose life who is deemed by others to be less than oerjds and therefore skpebdible, i can't share that. the road that starts that way and in deciding that some lives have left value and are unworthy of protection, that leads to a culture that tolerates the undeserved killing of over 55 million unborn children in this country. it leads to china's birth policy that limits the number of children for a family and enforces forced abortion if they deviate from the state determined ideal. it is also the culure that allowed the nazis to hideously justify the savage slaughter of millions of jews, disabled people, old people and those
5:06 pm
with mental illness. they first had to devalue them. now, i don't know what i would do if i were her parents because i'm not her parents. but i know that i want for these dear people to be allowed to make the decision about their daughter's future and not the medical staff of a hospital or some court. thank goodness the court so far has ruled right in ruling to continue to protect the parents' rights. let's hope and pray that the courts continue to do what every court should do, respect parents over government, family over hospitals and above all, protect jahi from them all. [ applause ] >> her story is all too familiar to my next guest. he is the brother of terry shiefo. she collapsed in 1990 and lived with a profound brain injury for over a decade.
5:07 pm
the legal battle over terry went all the way to the u.s. supreme court. but in 2005 her husband won the legal right to have her feeding tube removed. terry's brother bobbie is now the director of the terry shy offo life and hope network. he is in support of jahi's family and joins us now. bobbie, it is great to have you here and first of all, i know this must be painful watching this whole situation with jahi mcmath play out because i'm sure it brings back painful memories for your family. but let's talk about what you've learned on this situation and how it is similar to what your family has gone through. they are hoping to be able to move the daughter from this hospital, but the hospital said they won't participate in anything to stabilize her. that would seem to put her in a lot of danger in itself? >> right.
5:08 pm
well, i previously said what you spoke just a moment ago. and i agree -- couldn't agree more with what you said. yes, we put a team together and we were working and try tock get -- trying to get jahi transferred out of the facility and the hospital is making it extremely difficult for that to happen. putting up road blocks. my understanding from the latest ruling yesterday, they have made it accessible or easier to transfer jahi and that is what we're hoping will happen, sooner rather than later. >> the hospital has used terms like "dead", they refer to her as a body or the deceased person. when this whole situation unfolded withyer sister terry, many people made the same kind of connections, that she was dead and nothing left of her. talk about from a personal standpoint how this affects a family, as this person you love and you care for is being
5:09 pm
referred to as a dead person, somebody who no longer even exists? >> that is one of the reasons we're standing with this family. my heart breaks when i see the mother doing those interviews. similar to what my mom was saying. it is terrible the way think label my sisters, they labelled her as a vegetable and brain dead even and we knew how fully alive and responsive she was and how she interacted with people at times. it seemed like tey's whole case, she had to approve to everybody she had life and we loved her unconditionally with the brain injury she had. and we never understood why terry's case made the publicity that it did because it was just a family wanting to bring her home and take care of her and the nation saw how horribly we had to fight to bring her home and provide the care for her we wanted. but with terry's case and jahi's
5:10 pm
case and so many others we've experienced since we started this foundation, is hospital boards, doctors, ethics committees are making decisions in place of family members and that is what people need to be concerned about today, we are losing control and losing our medical control, our medical rights when it comes to making decisions for ourselves sand loved ones. >> i think that is what is frightening about this. maybe people don't realize, this is something that happens regularly where the hospital essentially makes a decision. sometimes it may be a little more subtle, they just say there is nothing we can do, but in some cases, this one and the case of your sister, they actively wanted to take that decision from you as a family. look, i understand they have medical expertise, but they are not god. >> right. >> and i think that is is what -- is what troubles many of us. your family had to fight, even though you were willing to take care of your sister and in the case of jahi, her family said we will take care of her, we just want to be able to have the
5:11 pm
option. >> and what is the rush with this young girl? why not give her some time to see if they can improve? but that is what people -- it is serious what is happening in our health system today. there is a quality of life mentality where doctors are making life and death decisions based on a person's quality of life and depending on what state you live in, we are talking about food and water, keeping people alive like my sister's feeding tubes. they are now empowered to even stop food and water, hydration from people if they choose to. and families have the rights, depending on what state you live in, to stop this from happening. and that should scare everybody. and with government health care we'll see this more and more with leaders and from what i've read that telling us there will be serious health care rationing coming with this. >> and that is one of the problems people have not made the connection to. the more government gets
5:12 pm
involved, they can make decisions and even end of life decisions. in this case it is a hospital, but that could be more maybe the payor, if the government is paying or the insurance company, they can say we are done or finished here. and what does the family do and what can the family do? >> that is why we formed our foundation. because we hope with -- that is where we come in. if the families know we are there and hopefully people know we are available, they turn to us and we have the resources that many times have been able to intervene and stop this from happening. a lot of times it comes down to getting lawyers involved and lawyers putting pressure on the hospitals to stop this and sometimes even going to court to stop these type of things from happening. >> bobbie stay with us. we'll have more with bobbie shindler when we return. and there are patients who defy the doctors and say there is no hope. you will hear one of those stories when we come back. stay with us. and drop offs begins with arthritis pain... and a choice. take up to 6 tylenol in a day or just 2 aleve for all day relief.

5:16 pm
we are back with bobbie shindler. bobbie, have you talked to the family of jahi mcmath? >> i'm been in communication with the father and you can tell he is emotionally drained but he's told me jahi is showing more responsiveness and they are hoping that they can try and provide help for their daughter which i think every parent would want to do at this point. >> it must help to have someone like you to talk with them and someone who understands the family side of this. this is not about medical charts and probabilities, this is about a human being that a family loves and wants to continue to treat as a human being and a member of the family. >> we want to let them know they weren't alone and that we were supporting them and many people across the country were supporting them and let them know we would be there for them and let them help. >> that is a beautiful young lady. and by sheerco ibs dense colin
5:17 pm
ray was scheduled to be our musical guest today and he'll be later on in the program to play some music. but colin has been a spokesperson for the terry schiavo organization. i think it is proveidden shall that you were here today and we had this planned long before jahi's case and before bobbie. this is personal to you. why? >> i've been through this as bobbie has too and my outcome was better than for terry. but back in 1985 -- the bottom line is coma is not equal death. coma is not death, period. that is what -- somebody said how do you know that? well my wife, back in 1985, a long story, i won't get into how it happened, but during the birth of my son jacob she had massive -- a huge plethora of problems that caused her to
5:18 pm
lapse into a coma after having cardiac arrest and a stroke simultaneously. within days -- i mean flat line coma. terry never was. but connie -- whatever the brain scan said, she will never wake up, vegetable. and this is 1985, a long time ago. within three days her neurologist approached me with her mother sitting next to me in the waiting room, ignoring her mother and looked at me in the eyes and said you do realize, you have the power to put an end to this. and i was just -- i was just 25. i'm like what are you talking about? it made me mad when i realized what he was suggesting. and her mother was just sobbing and he wouldn't look at her at all. but me, as this young husband who could be here today and gone tomorrow, i had the power to turn everything off. to make a long story short, seven weeks later she woke up. she's with us today.
5:19 pm
and fine as ever. >> i know connie. >> she's fine. and i can prove it and call her and put her on the phone. so the point is she had the same assessment that this precious little girl has. there is nothing going on there. >> how would that have made you feel if connie was still breathing and still some physical aspects of life going on, that doctors started speaking of her as the deceased and we have our body here? >> i was pretty brash back then. i would have probably got back in his face about it back then. but even the staff was more like, we understand. and this neurologist, i don't know where he came 23r but the -- came from but the culture of death is not new and brewing for a long time. in the case of this little girl, it has been, what, a month? >> a month. >> and give god a chance. first of all, if you believe in god -- i know god woke connie
5:20 pm
up. i know he heel -- healed her. but something did make her wake up. whether it was proveiddin shall or supernatural, you have to give them a chance. like bobbie said, there is a good chance she may improve. and to write her off -- and the reasons for it are just zbru so many -- gruesome to me. >> and bobbie, this case has brought back a lot of tough things as you and your family remember what you went through with terry. what encouragement do you give to jahi's family and to them and the rest of us to remind us not to give up? >> well just keep doing what they are doing. just keep fighting for their daughter and keep doing what they can to get support so that they can get through this. to this day, i don't know what what it was that got our family through that very difficult time. the point is the countless number of prayers and e-mails, phone calls and i know that had to help us during a very difficult time and just let the
5:21 pm
family know there are people out there supporting them and praying for this young girl to improve. >> well, bobbie, thank you very much. colin, we'll see you later in the show when we get to do some music with you and it will be fun as we do a tribute to glen campbell. but first a new year and a new way to infringe on your rights. gun owners in one part of the country willreregister and get fingerprinted all over again. we'll have a panel that will weigh in on it when we come back. new fast acting advil. with an ultra-thin coating and fast absorbing advil ion core™ technology, it stops pain before it gets worse. nothing works faster. new fast acting advil. look for it in the white box.

some some 30,000 registered gun owners in d.c. are required by a new year's law to reregister their handgun. reregistration includes getting photographed, fingerprinted and of course paying a fee.
5:25 pm
attorney and radio host ebony williams said it is about time but emily miller is outraged about this. she is a writer at the washington times and the author of emily gets her gun. emily, welcome back. great to have you here. thanks to both of you. emily, you are a gun owner living in d.c. which is a real minority? >> yeah, legal. there are criminals with guns. >> and you wrote the book to talk about just how difficult it was to go through the whole process. what is your reaction to the new law? >> well i'm outraged by it. this is the first time in american history for those who are law abiding and registering our gun, which i think is a violation of the fourth amendment, and pay $30, a gun tax, like there is any tax on any bill of rights, it is outrageous.
5:26 pm
and so this will be settled in the court. dick heller who overturned the ban in the supreme court, the original ban is appealing this as well. but it is not fair. the criminals are going out and getting their guns on the streets and they are not registering them so why do they have to make the law-abiding people go to the police station and get fingerprinted and pay a fine. >> ebony, if people were required to go to the police station and be fingerprinted and pay a fee to blog, because they might bully someone and that may result in someone's suicide, would you be okay with that and what is the difference? >> well, governor, at the end of the day we have to be concerned with society's safety. i agree and i'm an attorney and i respect the 2nd auto mendment to -- the 2nd amendment to bear arms and as long as the restrictions are not burdensome, i think that is okay. and i think this will be taken to the supreme court, but when
5:27 pm
that test is done, i think this will past muster. >> what about the argument that say we shouldn't have people that have a photo i.d. to vote because it is an inconvenience and they are disenfranchised because they don't have the opportunity to go down to get the photograph taken and get the i.d. is that a fair argument to ask? >> it is a fair question. but the bngsing test -- the balancing test has to do with what is the worst case scenario? with the voter i.d. you just suggested, voting, the problem has been happened so far. but the shootings that we have had -- >> in d.c. we have had long gun registrations in 1976, handgun registration in 2009 and no registered gun has been used. crime is up and furthermore there has never been a gun control law in the history of
5:28 pm
america that has reduced crime. all it does is affect the law abiding because the criminals don't care what the laws are. it is so irrelevant to them -- the only difference between me and the criminal, they have to go for a mug shot at the police department, they have to give their finger printss and i'm the one who has to pay the fee. that is the only thing that splits us aside. >> but sometimes law-abiding people commit gun crimes. in the la airport crime, he wasn't registered. >> he was registered though. >> but we have to worry about whether it is newtown or the navy yard shooting -- >> but it has nothing to do with gun ownership because gun ownership is the highest its ever been and gun crime has gone down to the point in the past 30 years, gun crime has gone down, murders have gone down 50%. >> let's change topics before time gets away. new york times edward snowden
5:29 pm
had to get a little bit of a relief, he is a hero, not a criminal, that he's just a whistleblower. ebony, your thoughts? >> i believe that the nsa stuff is unconstitutional, i believe it is overly broad and violates the fourth amendment but i think edward snowden has to be responsible for the way he went about his disclosures. and when you have to assess the fact that he knew beforehand what the consequences would be, he had to be prepared for those. i do think the government should entertain the notion of plea bargain but i don't think they are bound to. >> and you make have a different perspective, emily, on dealing with edward snowden. >> i had top level security clearance and snowden did as well and when you take that oath you understand that if other americans lives or our foreign assets are at risk when you release information, you can't
5:30 pm
know the consequences of what you do and that is what we have to -- why we have to prosecute snowden fully for what he's done because he put lives at risk. >> and i think we all agree snowden is no hero in terms of what he's done, but while he's no hero, he did commit a crime. he has done a great service to all of us by illuminating the trampling of the rights of every american, to be spied upon in a manner that i think by almost anybody's standards is clearly unconstitutional. great to have you here. terrific conversation with you. ebony, thank you very much and emi emily, thank you for coming. well why is this man wearing nothing but a pink tutu in the middle of new york's time square? he's not a street performer, he's doing all of this for a good cause. you wonder what it is? of course you do. you will meet him and hear his remarkable story, next.

live from america's news headquarters, i'm harris faulker. two people have died and two others injured in a fiery crash of a private jet at the airport in aspen, colorado. an faa spokesperson is telling fox news the plane was coming in from tucson, arizona, and crashed when it was trying to land this afternoon. the plane went off the runway, flipped over and burst into flames and the flight had originated from mexico. there were three people on board. a pilot, co-pilot and passenger. what could be record-breaking snow and dangerous conditions across several midwestern states, in the northeast it is coming and right now it is dipping douj into the south. windchill warnings are up from montana to alabama. forecasters are expecting temperatures in the chicago area to hit 15 below zero tomorrow with the windchill -- or rather air temperature. windchill is 40-50 below.
5:35 pm
i'm harris faulkner. now let's get you back to huckabee. i want to wish a very happy birthday to cara douglas. she will turn 100 on january 6th, so we say happy birthday and happy new year to you and your loving family. happy birthday, cara. if you walk through new york city's time square on any given day, chances are you will run into pretty colorful character. while most of them are street performers just looking for tips, my next guest poses in his costumes for greater cause. he and his tutu have been to the lincoln memorial in d.c., the golden gate bridge, in san francisco and to the grand canyon in arizona. did he it to cheer up his wife linda who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003. he has photographed himself in his tutu around the world and
5:36 pm
now published a book called ballerina. bob kerry and his wife join me now. and they join me now. so glad to have you here. i wanted the audience to sit -- as close as i'm getting to the tutu, i'm wearing a pink tie in your honor. no way i'm getting in the pink tutu. ain't going to happen. >> come on. >> first of all, let's talk about, how do you think of the whole idea of a tutu. what was going on in your head? >> well it started out as an assignment, because i'm a commercial photographer and it was for a ballet company in arizona. and we moved to new york 11 years ago and had it in the car and i've been photographing myself for a long time any way, i put it on and there it was. >> well, i'm going to move the tutu off the table so we can see the photographs better. this is -- where was this one
5:37 pm
taken? >> in italy, in tuscany. >> now that probably caused some heads to turn? >> a few italian ladies kind of giggled and kept walking. >> well it is better that they did that and turn around and say you are the kind of guy i've been waiting on all of these years. >> yes, i guess so. >> linda, when he first showed himself in the tutu, i'm curious, did you say, bob, you need help? >> no. i'm sure i laughed quite a bit. i'm used to bob's creative solutions to projects or just life situations. and i laughed. i know i laughed a lot. because, come on, he's in a pink tutu. >> you were fighting breast cancer when this all started and that's why he did it. >> actually, it started before that. and then he just -- it grew once i was diagnosed with breast cancer. >> did it cheer you? ? >> certainly. it was a great thing to focus on
5:38 pm
when i was going to chemotherapy and we had just moved to the city and it was nice to have just a break from life. >> when you showed this initially to some of your friends, and said, hey, here is my husband, i'm just curious what kind of response did you get from that? >> our friends understood, because they understood bob. i think family wanted to hear the story behind it. it is like, what is bob up to now? >> where is this shot? this is with the ballet company? >> it was the american ballet theater at lincoln center. >> and they let you go on stage in your tutu? >> they set it up, one of our fans was a stage manager there, and he helped make it happen. >> this is one of my favorites, this is standing in an opera house in new jersey, that is willie nelson's guitar and the most famous guitar probably in america other than bb king's
5:39 pm
lucille. they say the day the guitar gives out, he's done and finished and retiring. you got to hold it and stand there with it, that is pretty cool. >> all i could remember hearing is the crew saying, do not drop that guitar, whatever you do. >> linda, of all of the photos bob has taken of himself in the tutu, do you have a favorite? >> this one right here. it just so happened -- good timing. i love this photograph. i think -- >> it is a little corny. [ laughter ] >> okay, audience, calm down. >> i just like the fact that you don't know whether he is disappearing orem earthing and i just think symbolically for someone with cancer, there is all of the questions that are going on and it just really appealed to me. >> you created a book for this, raised money for people going
5:40 pm
through breast cancer. bob, bottom line, why do you do this? >> well, we've seen a lot of people going through their treatments and there isn't a lot of organizations that help women during their treatment. it is all about a cure or research and for us, linda has seen first-hand, her friends that would come to chemotherapy with their child because they don't have childcare. and it is like, that is one of the hardest parts of the treatment, is to deal with the chemotherapy and the side effects and for us if they don't have the means to -- to be taken care of, i feel like it is up to us to help out with that. >> let me just say that, what you've done is unique and creative and i hope you are the only man in america who wants to do it. >> well there are a few that -- >> it is a wonderful tribute to your wife. >> thank you so much. >> because you've chosen a unique way to express your love
5:41 pm
and support for linda. you are beautiful people. it is so nice to have you here and thank you so much for sharing. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> bob and linda kerry. president obama is trying to make good on his promise that you can keep your insurance and all of the so-called fixes are causing chaos within the insurance industry and now almost a dozen state attorneys general say they are illegal as well. we'll discuss that when we come back. stay with us. c explore what's new for 575 calories or less on oulighter fareu. enjoy fresh tossed. go fish. and try our new rosemary garlic chicken at olive garden.

5:45 pm
this this week kathleen sebelius was hit by a letter, signed by 11 states attorney general, stating the recent changes to fix obamacare are illegal. because they have not been approved by congress. my next guest left the health care industry last month after she's seen what obamacare is doing to insurance companies and the state commissioners. it is not pretty. this is her first opportunity to speak freely about what she's witnessed. please welcome julie benfield from united health care. full disclosure, she was the arkansas insurance commissioner during my tenure as governor and an appointee of that position, of which i'm quite proud. let's start with this lawsuit. the states attorney general have filed a lawsuit saying what the obama administration has done is
5:46 pm
illegal. why do you think the lawsuit has some merit? >> well because i think they are exactly right. i think that by executive order you can't just change what congress has passed. he can't just go in there and say, oh, well, i know this was law, but it is not working or we don't like it, let's just change it on a whim. it won't work. >> and i think a lot of people don't understand the process. when he said well, we're going to go ahead and let the states if they want to keep these insurance -- as a state insurance commissioner, you know that just brings havoc to the industry and explain to the audience who may not understand the regulatory process, why does that make a big deal to the companies and to the regulators? >> there were so many things in the 2,000 pages, so many mandates, so many directives, so many time lines to meet, not only on the insurance industry, but on the state government, on the federal government itself.
5:47 pm
it just would not work. there were so many things to change, so many things to look at. and as you come forward, you have financial responsibility, you have policies that are already in effect, you have consumer concerns, all of these concerns. you have state laws that are in effect that have to be taken care of. >> is it possible, structurally, for obamacare to work? is it something if we just give it time it will work or is it structurely doomed to fail? and i'm asking you from the perspective of someone who has been a regulator and an attorney within the insurance industry. blunt answer? >> that is not fair. >> yeah, it is fair. can it work? >> the short answer is no.
5:48 pm
and i would say preface. but i said no. i have come to the perspective that the federal government has no business in this business, has no business regulating the insurance industry, and a lot of other things it regulates. it cannot work. the federal government is not built to be an insurance company. it is not built to do this. it is not efficient, it is not effective, it is too large, it is too far away from the people. it does not understand insurance. insurance needs to be regulated closer to the people. it needs to be regulated at the state level as it was. >> and that is one of the big issues, is that obamacare takes it away from states and turns it over increasingly to the federal government. >> that is right. >> so we want to talk again sometime, julie, because i think it is a complicated issue but one americans have never fully grasped as to the challenges of obamacare and i appreciate you
5:49 pm
opening that door to talk about it. great to see you. >> great to see you, governor, thank you so much. coming up, colin rai will join us with the little rockers. we'll do a glen campbell classic. you don't want to miss it. that's next.
